Project Manager in Chester, Cheshire
on 12 April 2021
Not the worst, not great either, high staff turnover.
Let me be honest this isn't a terrible place to work nor is it a good place, if you are office based you will have a better time than the factory workers of which I do feel sorry for. like with all jobs you have your good and your bad staff/management etc. Calders offers next to no career personal development or sets aside no budget for this, we were enrolled on a free training course where Calders declined to pay the £15 per person for the certificate which shows their attitude towards staff training/development.The management have zero trust for office staff and believe nobody will do any work unless watched, at the start of the pandemic they tried their hardest to keep office staff in the office, the statement from HR was "my husband doesn't do any work when he works from home so none of you will" As I say its not a great place but it did offer some good CV experience and the was some good people (Design team, Head of Projects etc). Oh don't forget the free parking....on a industrial estate....that all offer free parking....its one of the job perks that will be dangled in front of you at interview stage....

Hazardous dangerous environments
Could be a great place to work but it isn't. The management are mostly incompetent orders rarely leave on time and come back regularly because they are inadequately produced.Staff training and progression is rare unless your a brown nose like the supervisor is over in c2

Badly managed with a poor attitude to health and safety
The guys on the shop floor are generally a hard working bunch of guys, but they are lead by poor management with no direction, with a total disregard to health and safety.

Old Equipment, Management Self Serving, Lads Great
Air quality poor with casting producing lead fumes in a factory with no factory extraction. Not really any kind of safety culture - new MD was starting to bring one in but was sacked probably for caring. Management either scared for their jobs due to incompetance or don't care enough to be bothered. Us and Them mentality is a bit ridiculous in this day and age. Good bunch of guys - adversity does that. Money poor for the conditions and potential future health issues, should probably get hazard pay. Unsure but it looks like the company are currently using the medical and disciplinary systems as a cheap back door redundancy program, one guy was given the bullet for having his eyes closed while standing up even after telling his manager he didn't feel well earlier. Could be a great place to work but isn't.
